    I did a search and found that for a D60 front end, I could use brake hoses from a 2000 Chevy 2wd pickup (2 right side hoses would work) to give me ~25 inches of brake hose for my truck (aprox 20 for stock). However, I couldn’t find if this was a direct bolt up or what exactly is involved. Any insight is appreciated.

    I have never herad of those lines working but they very well could work fine. I used some lines from napa for a 10-bolt that were plenty long for 8" lift and good flex. The part number is in the post yer part numbers thread. Lots of help, huh?

    I used Napa part # 380295 on my 60. I think thier somthing like 34" long. $26.99 each. I think the application was for a late '90s Dodge Ram 1/2 ton. I can't really remember. Out of the box, they have a wierd lookin metal bracket on the hose that needs to be cut off, but otherwise they work fine.
